I can't get sound to stream to players on other computers.
A friend in another town has been checking for me and he can see my
library on his browser, but can't hear any audio.

(I have SlimServer 5.3.0; no Squeezebox so there is no volume control showing
in SlimServer; using WinAmp player; WinXPpro with SP2 and Firewall;
Firewall ports are open for Slim; LAME correctly installed; bitrate 320.)

I can stream to myself just fine, including audio, but still can't get audio streaming
to others. Any ideas??

perhaps 320 is too high of a bitrate to reach the remote user and keep a steady
stream alive. The user at teh other end may have to set their buffer to a very
large number, in winamp prefs, for MPEG Audio input streaming.

try something like 1024kb, then you have to wait a while as it buffers.
